While Krieger's club sits in fourth place in the Women's Bundesliga, things are brighter for Frankfurt in its Cup competitions.
Last weekend, Frankfurt defeated league leaders Turbine Potsdam of Berlin in the quarterfinal of the German Cup by a 5-1 score. Frankfurt defeated Potsdam in the Final of the German Cup at the end of last season. Also in the semis are FC Bayern München, Hamburger SV and FCR 2001 Duisburg.
Frankfurt is also still rolling in the UEFA Women's Champions League with a quarterfinal two-game tussle with FC Malmo of Sweden on the horizon for next March.
Krieger's omission leaves 30 U.S. WNT players training in Los Angeles after several of the college players finished up final exams and arrived into camp at the end of last week.
